Stanley Market’s most popular dish is Vietnamese Pho, a noodle soup with a semi-mild broth and toppings of steamed chicken and bean sprouts. Their homemade red curry paste is good for those who prefer spicier tastes. Other popular dishes are the medium-spicy Lao stir fried rice, Thai green curry with a mild coconut taste and spicy sauce, and Singapore-style noodles with prawn flavored broth. Small a la carte dishes include Gỏi cuốn (Vietnamese rolls), Indonesian deep fried chicken with spicy sauce, and Chinese hot buns and dumplings.
Course meals for parties are also available. The Thai and Vietnamese course comes with popular Asian dishes including Gỏi cuốn, omelette, Gai Yaang (Thai grilled chicken with Thai soy sauce) Thai green curry, and a 120 minute all-you-can-drink drink plan. The Extreme Spicy Food course comes with all the spicy dishes on the menu and is well worth a try if you love spicy foods!
Lunch is served between 12 noon and 2 pm on weekdays and between 12 noon and 3 pm on weekends and public holidays, with a wide ranges of choices. The Daily Lunch Plate comes with your choice of daily fried dish, rice, soup, salad, Chinese hot bums, small deep fried foods, dessert and a drink.
